I am looking at variable HV237 in the 2013 DHS6 done in the Dominican Republic. Specifically, this variable:

HV237 Anything done to water to make safe to drink?
0 No
1 Yes
8 Don't know
(m) 9 Missing
(na) Not applicable

In the subset of the data I'm looking at I have many NA's. Would this indicate that nothing is done to make the water safe to drink (so effectively the same as no)? Or, would it indicate there is no need to treat water for these individuals (while yes would indicate there is a need and water is treated, and no would indicate there is a need but water is not treated)?

Please help me understand if possible. Thank you!
